DS-160 -- necessary for K-1 appointment letter queue?

Anyone out there know if the DS-160 electronic submission is required as part of "Step Three" of the K-1 Packet 3 checklist?

i.e., "Once we have received and processed the completed Form DS-230, Part 1, and your document checklist, we will send you an appointment letter... four to six months from receipt of this checklist..."

The reason I ask is that I'm about to send off my DS-230 and completed checklist -- but I just realized that my passport needs to be renewed so I can't submit the DS-160 until I get that done.

I can try to get a rush passport renewal tomorrow but it's gonna be tight cause I am traveling to see my Fiancee by air on Dec 26. So if anyone knows that I can safely wait to submit my DS-160 in mid-January while I go ahead and send the other packet 3 stuff now (caveat: without delaying my application a month)... please let me know!

Thanks in advance.

I would send them an email and ask. They responded to my email the next day I believe it was.

I have a feeling they need both forms, but I'm not positive.

Thanks! I just renewed my passport and am picking it up on Dec 24th... I will email Montreal and find out if I should wait to send everything together. Will let you know what they say.

Just FYI -- I heard back from the Montreal Consulate and they said that I can send ahead the DS-230 part 1 and document checklist without completing the DS-160 first. So it's possible to send them out of sequence as long as you plan to do the DS-160 within a reasonable timeframe (I told them it would be ~7 days behind the rest of the stuff).
